Tube collars for parrots work by restricting a bird’s neck movement, hindering the bird from reaching lower extremities. Because they only cover the neck, they don't restrict activities of living as much as traditional cone collars. We offer styles from soft, minimally restrictive collars to thick, stiff styles that limit access to hard to protect areas such as legs, feet and vent. When first introducing your bird to a tube collar, please consider the following:
- ✔ Your bird will have to get used to the feel of the fabric laying against its feathers.
- ✔ Your bird will need to develop the physical strength to carry the extra weight.
- ✔ You’ll need to supervise your bird for safety and may need to encourage your bird to eat, drink and climb.
- ✔ We recommend training for acceptance for 5-7 days.
